Separate from the Republican Party? I think not!

It’s 2021 and as I write this, it is Martin Luther King Day and Joe Biden will be sworn in as President tomorrow.

A military force is in place for the inauguration in our capital so large that it makes US foreign military zones embarrassed. Hmmm.

We’ve gotten a glimpse of what’s to come. Thousands are coming from Honduras to attempt to gain access to the US. They want free health care, free education, free food, and all that the US provides.

Biden stated he will give legal status for 11M illegal immigrants. Foreign policy: Will Biden and some of his cabinet picks be blackmailed by the Chinese government on policy issues because of what they can threaten to expose?

A pick for senior White House advisor Anita Dunn, was forced to resign in the Obama administration for a clip that appeared with her stating that Chairman Mao was one of her “favorite political philosophers.”

What do Republicans do?

What are we Republicans to do who cherish our freedoms, who believe and are proud to continue to strive to Make America Even Greater?

Whether you did or didn’t like President Trump, we do believe in his policies and saw their success.

Rather than separate ourselves from the Republican party, we need to defend and share examples of what does work in America. What did our Republican values bring us over the past four years.

Here’s a short view; greatest economy of all time, substantially increased wages and employment levels for minorities and women, energy independence, peace through perceived strength that gave us peace in the middle east, held back enemies aggression, and stabilized the world. He made our emergency personnel proud to do the work to protect us and keep us safe. The Republican party has taken over leadership in environmental policy through funding rather than talking in restoring the Everglades and improvements for our future water quality.

To win the battle of minds in America we need to fight to eradicate censorship, the cancel culture, and identity politics (whether sexual or racial).

We need to do what Martin Luther King dreamed of, that is for people to be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin.

What do we need to do to attract minorities and women? The answer is to do what we do for everyone else, that is to provide them the opportunities to thrive and prosper based on their initiative, ingenuity and willingness to work to achieve the American Dream. It still exists. Let’s unite the Republican party and fight for that.


The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.

Good government is based upon the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.

That free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.

Sound money management should be our goal.

In equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex, or national origin.

We must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.

That Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.

The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government
